“Beth David Synagogue in Greensboro, NC has included 92Y Live Simulcasts in our programming for years. The quality of their programs is so good that one of our members donates the cost to us each year to ensure the program continues and that ticket prices don’t prevent others from participating. Our members of all ages eagerly await news of each season’s line-up, and we love the variety of topics and speakers offered: sometimes political, sometimes literary, sometimes thought-provoking, sometimes entertaining, always informative. Just this morning I spoke with a man new to our community who was asking about our adult programming. He was delighted to learn that we participate in 92Y Live Simulcasts and wanted to be sure we got back to him once we had the fall schedule. Thank you for all the work you do to put these programs together and for making them available to those of us outside of New York.”
—Lia Sater, Director of Programming and Congregational Services, Beth David Synagogue, Greensboro, NC
“At Temple Beth Israel, Longboat Key FL we’ve been featuring 92Y Live broadcasts for over five years. The “Live” simulcast concept has resonated well with our audience. There is a spontaneity that’s unique in this era of packaged content.
Over the years we grew from 3-4 programs a season to now using almost every program offered. The quality of the selections has been consistently high, and our attendance continues to climb as more visitors share their discovery with friends and neighbors. The responsiveness of the 92Y staff has been superb. I recall one broadcast when we had an equipment failure with a FULL sanctuary, and the 92Y techs managed to quickly enable web streaming to save the day.”
“Here at Wycliffe members have greatly enjoyed our DVD showings of the 92nd Street Y Live Series. The variety of speakers and topics discussed ensure that there is something for everyone. We are very excited about participating in live streaming of the presentations this year and really being a part of the live action in NY.”

“The Live from NY’s 92nd St. Y events have truly been an outstanding addition to our cultural offerings here at our Mary D. Fisher Theatre. Our audiences can’t wait until the next simulcast! The programs are thought-provoking, inspiring, challenging, insightful and entertaining … sometimes all at the same time! It gives a much-needed platform for dialogue and understanding, and presents programs that are timely, topical and pulled from today’s headlines. This program is now a major part of the cultural fabric of our community!”
—Patrick Schweiss, Executive Director, Sedona International Film Festival and Mary D. Fisher Theatre
